    In spite of the ongoing data scandal surrounding several prominent figures in the global warming debate, President Obama, with agendized blinders firmly in place, is heading to Copenhagen to help open the international climate change conference, followed by his picking up his Nobel Peace Prize award...:doubt:

    ___


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama will go to Copenhagen for a U.N. climate change meeting on December 9, hoping to add momentum to an international process despite slow progress on a domestic bill to cut carbon emissions.

    Obama planned to make a visit at the beginning of the climate negotiations in Denmark, an administration official told Reuters on Wednesday, before picking up the Nobel Peace Prize at a ceremony in neighboring Oslo.

    ...In such an agreement, developed nations would set goals for cutting emissions by 2020, developing nations would agree to slow the rise of their emissions, and the rich would come up with new aid and clean technology to help the poor cope with climate change.

    Ah yes, distribute global wealth in the name of now -proven tainted "climate change science".

    Ladies and gentlemen - our president is achieving moronic status of epic proportions...

    The socialists are in "hurry hurry" mode to push through as much as they can as fast as they can to either collapse the system or to put the pieces on the board that they can ultimately bring about their revolution afterwards.

    The next president and congress needs to pretty much reverse almost all laws pushed through between 2006 and potentially the end of P-BO's disastrous reign.

    Obama's ultimate goal will be to reduce emissions by 83% by 2050. Has anyone really thought just how much our industry would be maimed if this ever went into effect?
    I do believe this Senate and Congress make-up will be changing considerably in light of what Obama and them are trying to push through. it certainly will be a train wreck if it isn't changed.

    The cost of ignoring climate change will many orders of magnitude greater than the cost of addressing this issue.

    STERN REVIEW: The Economics of Climate Change
    vi
    Summary of Conclusions
    There is still time to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, if we take
    strong action now.
    The scientific evidence is now overwhelming: climate change is a serious global
    threat, and it demands an urgent global response.
    This Review has assessed a wide range of evidence on the impacts of climate
    change and on the economic costs, and has used a number of different techniques to
    assess costs and risks. From all of these perspectives, the evidence gathered by the
    Review leads to a simple conclusion: the benefits of strong and early action far
    outweigh the economic costs of not acting.
    Climate change will affect the basic elements of life for people around the world –
    access to water, food production, health, and the environment. Hundreds of millions
    of people could suffer hunger, water shortages and coastal flooding as the world
    warms.
    Using the results from formal economic models, the Review estimates that if we don’t
    act, the overall costs and risks of climate change will be equivalent to losing at least
    5% of global GDP each year, now and forever. If a wider range of risks and impacts
    is taken into account, the estimates of damage could rise to 20% of GDP or more.
    In contrast, the costs of action – reducing greenhouse gas emissions to avoid the
    worst impacts of climate change – can be limited to around 1% of global GDP each
    year.
    The investment that takes place in the next 10-20 years will have a profound effect
    on the climate in the second half of this century and in the next. Our actions now and
    over the coming decades could create risks of major disruption to economic and
    social activity, on a scale similar to those associated with the great wars and the
    economic depression of the first half of the 20th century. And it will be difficult or
    impossible to reverse these changes.
    So prompt and strong action is clearly warranted. Because climate change is a
    global problem, the response to it must be international. It must be based on a
    shared vision of long-term goals and agreement on frameworks that will accelerate
    action over the next decade, and it must build on mutually reinforcing approaches at
    national, regional and international level.

    Pascal's wager is yet more flawed logic, to go with the flawed and fudged "research".

    yawn


    majority of this global warming bullshit comes from al gore and the politically motivated IPCC who basis their conclusions from research data from people like the CRU whom we now know manipulate their data for their own benefit.

    No one argues the planet is going through changes...thats what it does. It's done it time and time again before lunatics like you took one step on Earth.

    Of course President Obama is ignoring this tempest in at teapot. Why should anybody with any intelligence pay any attention to it? The 'Evidence' is either e-mails out of context, or possibly manufactured. But it is amusing that you people have not had such a gleeful time since the clown landed on the aircraft carrier off San Diego in his cute little flight suit and cod peice, and decared "Mission Successful". The end of this little misadventure will be just as positive for you as that was.
